• Fall and Winter Sessions Now Booking

    Thank you for stopping by....
    I feel totally blessed by the many beautiful expectant parents, newborns, children and families that choose me to document so many important milestones. Your support continues to amaze me and I am looking forward to another great year! If you are pregnant and looking for maternity/newborn photos I suggest you contact me early in your pregnancy to secure a session around your due date. My new studio, located in downtown Summerland offers beautiful natural light, and a space for tired parents to relax and watch me create timeless newborn memories. I am currently booking newborn sessions from October to March (2017)

Wynter Violet :: 4 Months Newborn {Kelowna Premature Baby Photographer}

Wynter Violet took her parents by surprise and arrived at 27 weeks gestation on December 24th, while the family was in Vancouver to celebrate christmas.  Weighing under one kilo at birth, Wynter did amazingly well and after 3 months in the NICU she was able to go home March 28th. Big sister Poppy was born at 24 weeks and these girls are exactly 9 months apart. Mom is a super hero and is doing an amazing job juggling two babies! Wynter is very unlike her sister. She certainly made me work hard to get her posed and sleeping.  You would never know by these images, ha ha, but mom can vouch for how much of a hot mess I was. Wynter is a very light sleeper and any little discomfort wakes her up. Poppy was so patient and for a one year old did so well. She is a very easy going baby and super smiley. Thank you Misti for making your way down to me so I could capture these special memories for you. I am sure in a couple years you will need them to remind you of this time as I am sure it will be a blur. Your girls are super sweet. 

Addison Iris :: 13 Days Newborn {Penticton Newborn Photographer}

I had such a great time photographing this sweet baby girl this morning. Addison Iris was born March 29th, 2 days before her due date and weighed 7 lbs 9oz. Following our session she had a weight check and is already up to 7 lbs 15 oz! Addison was super cuddly. She let me get through two set ups before she protested and even at that it wasn’t much of a protest. She definitely likes shushing and rocking. I love that she gave me some awake time. It looked as though she was just taking it all in. I could have finished my session in 2hrs I am sure but I didn’t want to end our session. I like to push the limits and Addison gave me lots of play time. Thank you Alecia and Matt for trusting me to capture your sweet girl’s first portraits. (credit goes to the sweet ladies at Carls Flowers for loaning me the flowers. Having a flower shop downstairs from my studio is going to prove to be very handy!) Here are just a few from today….enjoy! 

Levi Benjamin :: 9 Days Newborn {Kelowna Newborn Photography}

This handsome little guy was born March 26th weighing 7 lbs 8 oz and was welcomed by mom, dad and big sister Ava. I met Sarah, Josh and Ava last month at their maternity session and today Levi came to meet me. Ava was very happy to snuggle her new baby brother and for almost 2 1/2 did such a good job. We got through the sibling and family images before Levi decided to wake up. He was very much a fan of the soother, so much so it was hard to sneak it away with out a protest. With brief little snoozes, we were able to capture some great images. I think my favourite is the bright eyed one. Levi was keeping an eye on me for sure and I wasn’t sure if I was actually gonna win. Thank you Sarah and Josh for bringing Levi to me for his newborn session. I can’t wait to see him in 6 months. Here are just a few from our session. Enjoy!

Chantel & Jeremy :: Expecting { Penticton Maternity & Newborn Photographer}

Yesterday couldn’t have been more perfect for my first outdoor maternity session of 2017!  The sun was glorious giving such a beautiful light. Chantel and Jeremy met me late in the afternoon to capture images to document their first pregnancy. Chantel is due May 7th making her 34 1/2 weeks. She brought along a couple of different props to use and I love her pink dress ( one I almost purchased last week for this very occasion!) Thank you Chantel and Jeremy for having me capture this exciting time for you. I am excited to meet your new little one this May!

Absolutely gorgeous!

Persayus Georgia :: 11 Months {Kelowna Baby Photographer}

This smiley girl came yesterday for her sitter session. There wasn’t much sitting that went on as Persayus is very much on the move. Mom says she went from not sitting to sitting, crawling and furniture cruising in a very short period of time. Persayus was born 5 1/2 weeks early last April and mom was the lucky winner of a session I had donated for a challenge the nicu was doing. Kangaroo care is when a mom (or dad) spends time skin to skin with their baby. It has many benefits not only for the baby but also the parents. For every hour of skin to skin time, parents could enter a ballot. Persayus is super happy and has a mischievious side to her. We no sooner set her down and she was giggling and trying to get away. Big brother Ajax joined in on few images too. I love the one of them together. Thank you Rachel for making your way down to my studio. Your children are beautiful. Here are a few from our session.
